Hi, I’m Lendon. I currently live outside Atlanta, GA. I’m the founder of and


My parents went though an big divorce when I was 16 and started living on my own at that age (was eating oatmeal and didn’t have friends) and had to figure out how to make money with VFX. I never went to worked a job and never went to public school.

Video Copilot’s early tutorials kicked off my career (no surprise), worked for, I moved to LA, worked for big VFX studios, and eventually started that has been very successful.

I have extensive experience in Nuke, Adobe Suite, Cinema 4D, and have worked closely with specialist in every other VFX software like Houdini, Maya, Blender, etc


My goals are:

  1. Help 50 ambitious VFX artists make over $20k monthly revenue
  2. Help people become happier and wiser with meditation
  3. Teach as many people as possible by growing YouTube and what not


For fun, I like to:

  1. Learn about the Buddha’s teaching
  2. Design & build software
  3. Have useful conversations with my friends & family
  4. Make friends with strangers
